A Robot Walks into a Bar…

Lucky number 13. This anime music video is the first of an as-yet incomplete trilogy. It’s a strange concept but the music and anime go well together.

Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Pt. 1 by The Flaming Lips

Created: 7/2005

This AMV was a lot of fun to make. It combines the serious threat of robots (called Boomers in the anime) with some of the silly antics in the show, which are also present within the music and lyrics of the song. The rest of the trilogy uses BGC:T2040 footage and other songs from the Yoshimi Flaming Lips album.
